There are a few traditions when it comes to college football that are rites of passage. One of them is certainly the spring football game.
Last year 4,000 fans were in attendance at French Field for the Green vs. Gold game. These fans were treated to an array of action, including a quarterback kicking extra points and a walk-on scoring the game-winning points. The fans were able to see what the following season would be like.
Every fan has his or her opinion regardless of the information they have gathered. But a true fan does proper research and comes to a logical, fact-based opinion. For those looking to be true fans, we urge you to attend this Saturday’s game.
And even if you aren’t a big football fan, the spring football game is a great chance to learn about the game of football in an informal setting. This will be a chance to see the players up close and since the game has no admission fee, it doesn’t take any extra cash to attend the game.
In the long run, the spring football game, just like sports in general, is not life or death. No matter who wins or loses Saturday, life will go on. However, it is a way to escape for a few hours and enjoy being outside while watching a number of our exceptional student athletes putting their football skills on display.
